Texas Special Needs Facility Rooting for ‘Best Friend’ Pat Mahomes In Super Bowl
Despite never seeing my team in the Super Bowl, I always end up rooting for one team in the big game without getting too invested.
I thought I may as well pull for the Chiefs on account of their quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, being a native Texan. Then I saw a story from KFOR.COM about the former MVP and knew I made the right decision.
Mahomes played college football at Texas Tech. while he was there he visited High Point Village in Lubbock - a faith-based nonprofit that works to enrich those with special needs.
His fundraising visit made a huge impact on many of the villagers. One of the villagers said Mahomes is “Fast, fast as me almost. That’s why I like you as a best friend,”.
So not only is he one of the most fun/talented players to watch, he's one of the kindest. I love sports for what they are and simply enjoying the game, but I'll root for the success of kind-hearted folks any day.
